Have you ever seen a silicone heart retainer and wondered “How the heck do I use that thing?!” Since they have an interesting design, they can be a bit confusing to use. However, once you get the hang of it, they are perfect for things like contact sports or just concealing your piercing for the day.
Let’s go over how to insert one in 4 easy steps:

- Pull it tight and gently pinch closed the heart shaped loop
- Insert the tapered end into the piercing and gently push as far as you can
- If needed, take a pair of tweezers and use them to pull the tapered end all the way through and adjust until comfortable
